  1. Re: Some Controversial Aspects of the Myth of Baldr

    Not a bad piece, but I think some assumptions are made that damage it. First is the idea both Hother and Balder are deities. This is found in Snorri, but the only indication of either being a god in...

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    Yes, Yggdrasil could be cosidered a cosmos, but it could also be considered a multi-verse. Still a greater whole, but I think with such thought one loses the diversity of the Nine Worlds. The...

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    No, the only thing that could possibly be considered that is wyrd, karma if you will, and it could not be swayed. But there was no idea of a unified cosmos. Indeed, there were nine worlds in the...

    Just a point here. IF you take the creation of man from Germania then you might be able to argue your point. However, if you go by the Eddas, Mankind was created from two trees, Ash and Elm, and then...

    Important! Poll! Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    Re: Irmin, Ingo and Isto

    One theory I have been kicking around is that what we have in the Eddas is the origin of the Ćsir, while in Germania we have the origin of the Vanir. That is Mannus is Njord, and Ingo is Freyr. Irmin...

    Important!  Re: Recommended Reading List

    I would also recommend the <a href="http://www.ealdriht.org">Miercinga Theod</a> site. While it is Theodish and Anglo-Saxon specific, it has a lot that can be of use to anyone.

    Yes, it can be, and there is such a group The Covenant of Anglo-Saxon Heathenry :: Geleafawaer Fyrn Sida. Their website is at: http://www.fyrnsidu.org/larhus/. Though why anyone would want to...
  14. Re: Book: The Nature of Ásatrú by Mark Puryear

    I see it as unlikely. While I do feel that William Reeves' idea that Frigga is Mother Earth there is no evidence that she is mother of Frea (Freyr) and Freo (Freya). I suspect Puryear is basing this...

    Re: Seaxneat

    Re: Beowulf & Grendel
